The movie turns a little soapy as it tries to locate a satisfying ending, and there are too many self-conscious statements of life's little lessons, yet the passion remains.

John Hartl, Seattle Times, 2014-10-02

 

There are complex situations, well-acted characters and a central relationship that feels authentic and mature - and yet it's missing some element to bring it fully into focus.

Penny Walker, Arizona Republic, 2014-09-25

 

Juliette Lewis and newcomer Jonny Weston bring terrific sensitivity to their roles.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2014-09-18

 

A sly satire that's sexy, touching, and funny, if seriously flawed.

Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-09-12

 

An offbeat drama with a pervasive sense of unease. Compelling, if slightly inconclusive.

Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 2014-09-11

 

Nothing too shocking happens, nor does the film end in some completely unpredictable way. It's a modest pleasure.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2014-09-05

 

The performances of Ms. Lewis and Mr. Weston crackle with authenticity. Like a good punk-rock song, this bracingly honest, tough-minded vignette stays true to itself.

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-09-04

 

Lewis is a star in her prime, and more smart directors should put her to work.

Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly, 2014-09-03

 

Assured ...

Serena Donadoni, Village Voice, 2014-09-02

 

The chemistry between Lewis and Weston couldn't be more appealing throughout, as their distinct energies perfectly complement the characters and each other.

Geoff Berkshire, Variety, 2014-09-02

 

It's a film that takes its characters and their crises seriously, allowing them to fully explore their situation before providing them (and the audience) a genuine roadmap for finding their way through.

Todd Gilchrist, TheWrap, 2014-09-02

 

It's difficult to be fully invested in the Big Emotional Developments of the final act.

Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times, 2014-09-26

 

The film is mostly proof that changing the gender and details in a premise doesn't do much good if the presentation is conventional in nearly every other way.

Tomas Hachard, NPR, 2014-09-05

 

This uneven directorial debut from Jen McGowan is notable mostly for a nicely understated turn from Juliette Lewis.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2014-09-04

 

The film drifts into boilerplate paces.

Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2014-09-03
